An interleukin-3 (IL-3) dependent mast cell line (MC) was infected with a recombinant retrovirus expressing the proto-oncogene c-myc and the drug selectable marker neo. Cells containing the transcriptionally activated c-myc gene displayed an increased growth rate in liquid culture and a higher cloning efficiency in soft agar when compared to control virus infected cells. All infected cells remained absolutely dependent on IL-3 for growth and were not tumorigenic in nude mice. Similar results were obtained with two additional IL-3 dependent cell lines, the mast cell 32D and the pre-B-cell Ea3. Thus, while constitutive expression of c-myc potentiates the response of mast cells to IL-3, it is not sufficient to eliminate their requirement for growth factors.
